Arashiyama

Park Kyoto, Japan

For a less touristy and more rural area Arashiyama

Arashiyama is the second-most important sightseeing district in Kyoto: filled with temples and shrines, its the star attraction is the famed Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. Arashiyama is in the far west of Kyoto, tucked along the base of the Arashiyama Mountains (meaning “Storm Mountains”). It’s a fair distance from the center of Kyoto: whether you go by train, bus, bicycle or taxi, you’re generally looking at about a 30-minute trip, still, it’s worth it for the number of great sights here. Arashiyama is a nationally designated Historic Site and Place of Scenic Beauty.
